I’d been wanting this little jacket for months and months and after doing some design work for a dear friend, she gifted me with it. It’s not a color I’d normally be drawn to but when paired with black and white, it pops in a major way. I think I love it so much because the back has a slight tail and well, the whole thing reminds me of 90s-era Prince. And that’s something that I can get behind.
Weekend gear: this is what I wore around town this morning to run a few errands. Dimepiece t-shirt dress, H&M knit dress (underneath), H&M tights and Chloe booties.
As I was digging through the flat files in my office last night, I found a huge stash of print-outs from last year’s projects. Catalogs, lookbooks and a prototype of my personal media kit were in the mix. The colors and textures got me inspired to move forward with some new personal designs.
Over the weekend, Joey helped me with some Trippen ads for Solestruck. My interest in Trippen began last year when Bianca sent me a street fashion shot of a lady wearing the oddest soled shoes I’d ever seen. Since I worked at shoe stores all through college, I consider myself pretty knowledgeable at recognizing brands…but I couldn’t place these. She eventually figured it out and we both fell in love with their medieval / modern styling. Of course, Solestruck picked up the line and I finally have a pair of my own.
I’m going to take full advantage of my holiday weekend working on little projects around the house. See you Tuesday! xoxo
